Utah Heads To Polls For Super Tuesday Primary Vote

Utah voters are headed to the polls to cast their votes in the state's first presidential primary held on Super Tuesday, the high-profile series of contests held in delegate-rich states. The Democratic front-runner is Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, though Utah voters have also been courted by moderates in the weeks leading up to the contest. While Sanders has a deep well of popularity with the state's left-leaning voters, some in the Republican majority have not fully embraced President Donald Trump and moderates see an opportunity to woo middle-of-the-road voters with a pitch that they offer the best chance to unseat the president.
